We all know the problem of sockets too high to comfortably rest the cell phone or cables lying around that we constantly trip over while the cell phone is recharging the batteries. With a shampoo bottle, you can easily build a stand that doesn’t look bad and acts as a charging station.

How to build a mobile charging station
In our step-by-step instructions, we tell you how you can make something easier for your everyday life from the supposed junk.
- All you need for this trick is an empty bottle of shampoo or shower gel. Rinse thoroughly and wait for it to really dry. It is best to remove the adhesive as well. Also make sure the width of your mobile fits into the shampoo bottle.
- Now comes the tricky part: First, cut off the top of the shampoo bottle. Now also cut the front of the shampoo bottle so that there is a holder for your mobile.
- Last but not least, you need to drill a hole for the charging cable on the back and use it to attach the bracket to the wall.
- If you wish, you can embellish the charging station with stickers or pretty colors.
Incidentally, you can also use the built structure for other items and attach it to the wall as a kind of stand for pens and junk. Next to the bed, this upcycling idea also works well as a stand for your reading glasses. Just stick it on the wall with duct tape or a nail.
